Thanks big daddy, i appreciate it. The winch is incredible. It came with the truck and that ramp folds out to aid in loading. I use it all the time for the tamper and my new jackhammer came with the handy dandy cart.
Thanks Krayz, congrats again. you know the deal. One day at a time trying to be the best

I noticed you use your 5640 on the jobs I keep mine at the shop but it's been a real workhorse I'm afraid to bring on the jobs, that thing would ruin everything that it drives over!

Why is that zedo? It is heavy but my little mustang snapped a tilt cylinder and i can't find parts for it. I want to buy a track joint soon. The gehl handles everything i throw at it. Ran the hell out a harley rake today

I only use tracked steers on site, at one time I only had wheeled units and didn't know the difference. There is a zero damage with the tracked units

Someone find me a deal within four hours of ny. I need one of these. Rented for 200 and it was awesome. First time running it but got the hang of it pretty quick

Before

After but before final raking. This is only two thousand sq ft. Out came the nastiest four yards of crap. License plates. Clothes. A roll of barbed wire and anything else you can imagine

Sod deploy!

Finishing it with two more skids tomorrow if it stops raining

Anyone have tips with the Harley rake? I was experimenting using different combos of float, tilt, etc. it's a pain in the ass without an on off button to use the joystick controls while backing up. Kept hitting the lap bar. Stupid design on gehls part. I know the front wheels of the attachment are adjustable, do you guys start with them all the way up and finish grade with them down. I made about ten passes every which way over the yard pushing all the crap to the closest corner then loaded it into the truck.

I normally rototill (have a 24" honda) then have the guys rake out all the crap and level it. 2000 sq ft would almost take a whole day. This yard was raked in 2 hours. DONE. Scrambled to get sod because i ordered it all for monday. If i owned one i could probably get 5k to 10k per day done and have a truck full of sod follow me up. Incredible money maker but you need 6' access, and it helps if theres no irrigation. Didn't try it on any tree roots but it might require a ripper like the eliminator or rough grade with a tooth bucket before you rake it.

Im finding tons of them for 3point on tractors for 2k obo on craigslist. Is it as simple as torching the mounts off and welding on a QA plate? Or are the flow rates different etc?
